Connecting Christians to Frontline Missions

Who We Are

Mission Builders International is the volunteer placement branch of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a global organization dedicated to training and sending Christian missionaries since 1960. YWAM’s goal is “to know God and to make Him known.”

What We Do

Mission Builders International recruits short-term volunteers and matches them with global ministry opportunities within Youth With A Mission. Mission Builder volunteers “lift up the arms” of frontline missionaries  through practical, hands-on service.

We say over and over again that the best thing we could have ever done was to be with Mission Builders International; to go out on projects and to bring new joy to all those with whom we served. What a blessing and a joy that never quits! Al and Annie F.

I have been a missionary with YWAM Thailand since 1989. I still remember when God gave us our first piece of land in Chiang Rai. Thanks to you, buildings were begun. We have seen God do amazing things and now, it really is a regional training center for all of this part of Asia. All praise and glory to Jesus Christ! Thank YOU Mission Builders, from one grateful YWAM Thailand-er. Linda H., YWAM Thailand

To learn what they have been through as missionaries and what God has done in their lives was the most wonderful blessing in the trip. To see how these people live day by day on God’s provisions strengthened my faith and trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Mission building was the toughest, most amazing and spiritually-growing experience I’ve ever had. I encourage anyone who is seeking a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus while serving an incredible organization and having so much fun along the way to check out mission building opportunities. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain! Jaclyn H.

Together, we can get the job done.


Go deep. Grow strong. Get equipped.
